-apartheid movement. it's just not true. >> this came up in 2000 when dick cheney was nominated to be the vice presidential candidate. and he was asked on this program by tim russert about opposing even a resolution to call for mandela's being freed. this is what cheney said then. >> well, certainly i would have loved to have nelson mandela released. i don't know anybody who was sffor keeping him in prison. again, this was a resolution of the american congress, so it wasn't as though if we passed it he was going to be let out of prison. it had another provision. it required the recognition of the anc, which at the time advocated violence in south africa. my recollection is the reagan administration opposed it and i supported the administration. >> tom? >> everything was happening at warp speed. that's one of the things you have to remember. we were going from the pitch cold war to these extraordinary changes that were going on not just behind the soviet union but in the satellite states as well. then in south africa, you had the additional pressure, as reverend sharpton points out, that grew r

administration branded the anc a terrorist group and dick cheney voted against a resolution to release nelson mandela. so this was all happening around the world. >> right. i think peter godwin's point that south africa's transition was facile traitated by the end the cold what are is extremely important but it's important to remember in the 1980s a lobl anti-apartheid movement arose during the cold war in which people in america said we're not going to see south africa in purely cold war terms. we're not going to sep reagan's pacic envision that the apartheid regime is on the part of the free world because it's anti-communist and the anc, they are on the side of unfreedom. i think the willingness to look at south africa beyond cold war terms when when the cold war was raging was critically important to the transition in south africa. >> when you talked with nelson mandela, did you find that he -- had he forgiven the west for, you know, having mostly for the most part sided against the anc? >> i think in my conversations with him, he forgave the west, and he realized there's a huge amount of

's policies. listen to former vice president dick cheney this morning -- just this morning on fox. listen to this. >> the same people that brought us you can keep your insurance if you want are telling us they've got a great deal in iran with respect to their nuclear program. i don't believe it. >> i mean, what does iran have to do with health care? what is he talking about? >> this man wants to take money away from americans for health care and put it into one more unnecessary law. and do you know how outrageous that is? not only was he responsible for lying us into the iraq war, he has a taxpayer funded new heart. our tax dollars have kept him alive to the tune of millions of dollars over the years, but he's mocking the president for covering more americans and also mocking him for avoiding war. i would say that new heart is actually not working very well. >> well, it's all about stopping the president. i mean, the gop's opposition to health care is all about that. i mean, texas attorney general greg abbott said i go into the office, sue barack obama, and then i go home. this is how he

in the house voted to sustain reagan's veto of the sanctions bill a. republican from wyoming dick cheney was one of them. 27 republicans voted to sustain them. babcock ran of mississippi. there were plenty of votes. sanctions did go into effect. but for some on the right, nelson mandela remained a punching bag. >> we didn't meet with one representative of the african national congress. the anc. you know, bishop tutu's crowd which has orchestrated and financed by the soviet union. willie mandela, winnie mandela the wife of mandela has boasted we have the tears, we have the gasoline and we have the matches. that's the way these folks orchestrated by the soviet union act and the new york times and the washington post and cbs and abc and nbc and the rest of the big media and a liberal politician, mr. kennedy and the rest that, i say we got to deal with these folk. we got to meet with them. i say, be loaloney. >> it's understandably maddening right now. you want to think back to all of that, how many leaders in this country dragged their feet and made excuses in the face of south africa's apa
